Thermographic and clinical correlation of myofascial trigger points in the masticatory muscles

Haddad DS et al. – The aim of the study was to identify and correlate myofascial trigger points (MTPs) in the masticatory muscles, using thermography and algometry. Infrared imaging measurements can provide a useful, non–invasive and non–ionizing examination for diagnosis of MTPs in masticatory muscles.   [button url="http://dmfr.birjournals.org/content/41/8/621.abstract" size="normal" color="crimson" ...

Sella turcica morphology and the pituitary gland–a new contribution to craniofacial diagnostics based on histology and neuroradiology

Kjaer I – The present review summarizes two decades of published and unpublished studies on normal and pathological development of sella turcica and pituitary gland in humans. The review demonstrates the value of combining profile radiographic diagnostics with neuroradiological diagnostics in cases with malformed sella turcicae.   [button url="http://ejo.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2012/11/14/ejo. ...

Management appears to follow a biomedical model and most clinicians chose to refer patients for treatment. There are few specialist services to cater for such referrals, indicating a need to train primary car ...

Web-based calibration of observers using MRI of the temporomandibular joint

Hellen–Halme K et al. – Criteria were useful in order to standardize and simplify evaluation and thereby probably increase the diagnostic outcome among different observers for MRI of the TMJ. The authors recommend that the criteria be used internationally to facilitate comparisons between different studies.   [button url="http://dmfr.birjournals.org/content/41/8/656.abstract" size="normal" color="crims ...
